HANOVER TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The Butler County Sheriff's Office is offering a reward to anyone who can provide information about recent vehicle thefts reported in Hanover Township.

Sheriff Richard Jones said between March 24 and April 15, nine different reports were received from 17 different victims. Jones said the thefts happened during the overnight hours, and most of the incidents involved unlocked vehicles. 

Authorities said all sorts of electronic equipment and devices have been stolen, including GPS and laptops, along with briefcases, backpacks, wallets, sunglasses, money, and some weapons. The incidents were reported near the Minton Road, Mormon Road and Stillwell-Beckett Road areas.

"It's unfortunate that these thefts are occurring," said Sheriff Jones.  "At the same time, people have to realize that you shouldn't leave valuables in plain sight, and in an unlocked vehicle.  My Detectives are working hard to find the person, or persons, responsible.  I encourage everyone to keep your vehicles locked, and take your valuables inside the house at night."

Jones said there is a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the thefts, provided by an anonymous donor. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office Investigations Unit during normal business hours at (513) 785-1234 or the Dispatch Center at (5513) 785-1300.

Sheriff's deputies have also received similar reports from Liberty Township, however, they do not believe the incidents are related.
